"A surprising and refreshing app from Bob Weir of The Grateful Dead."

Nuff said?

Bob wanted a very certain feel to the app - not slick and hi-tec. So, we had an illustrator hand draw everything - no computer graphics. It's old-school like hand silkscreen. In fact, we are going to post some of the early drawings, so fans can see the process we went thru to develop the app.

That is great - the hand drawn stuff is always better.

personally, i like the look.

I'm not so sure Bob would look good if rendered with the World of Warcraft graphics engine.

I say he stills looks like the Abominable Snowman from Rudolph, live or as a cartoon.

Hey guys!

We made this app with Bob. He would love to hear what you think of his take on kids songs. Become a fan of his app page and you can get free downloads and get the latest news on his app. When he gets off the road from touring with Furthur he'll check out your comments. Did you know that 100% of the proceeds of this app go to his Furthur Foundation! Thanks Guys!

So what's the skinny on Bob planning a country album (a well overdue development to my mind)? Or was he just goofing around with the Miami interviewer?

Does he actually sing - or is it more of a talk-sing lounge lizard vibe? Probably better than Ratdog.

He actually sings kids songs and does his own acoustic versions as well. I just posted free downloads codes on the Facebook page if you want to check out the app! Become a fan and you can download a free code to enter into iTunes.

Thanks much for the code, I managed to grab one off of Facebook so I'll be sure to post my impressions here and on Itunes. I can't wait to see what my kids think. They love the few Ipod apps I've DL'd for them, and they love Jerry's "Not For Kids Only" so I have high hopes for this.
